Our Favorite Interventions:
You might not recognize all of these as "interventions" technically speaking. This is because my kids and I find "interventions in all that we do. Of course, the usual speech therapy, occupational therapy, physical therapy, etc. are always recommended. But included in this list are some ideas you may not have necessarily heard of before, but I feel that they benefit my kids on many levels.
PLAY Project (Play therapy)
Riders Unlimited, Inc. (Equine therapy)
